Hi Alexe,

you can certainly do that, but you'll need to implement some kind of VM
interface for the class library you want to use in the VM.
Take a look at the native code for the VM* interfaces from GNU Classpath
to get a rough idea how that works, and then spend
some time to understand and implement the corresponding functionality
for your desired class library.
